Who is Foodbank Queensland?
Foodbank Qld is Queensland’s largest hunger-relief charity, sourcing and rescuing over 14 million kilograms of essential food to Queenslanders in need, through a large network of front-line charity members each year. That is the equivalent of 7 football fields of food!
Do e s QLD have a hunger problem?
The short answer is, yes. The Hunger Report 2019 states that 1 in 5 Queenslanders will experience hunger each year, with 22% being children! The most shocking figure about hunger is how little it takes to help. Every $1 donated provides 2 meals for someone in need. Thanks to incredible retail supporters, Foodbank can buy essentials foods heavily discounted, so we can buy much more with your dollar than you could buy at your local supermarket!
What food do e s foodbank provide?
We source and rescue a mix of fresh vegetables and fruits, long-life pantry essentials (like rice, pasta, flour, long life milk, tinned produce and meal bases) and short-life essentials like bread, milk, meat, cheese and yoghurt. The average food donation we source could fill your lounge room with food!
